HL Deb 31 July 1849 vol 107 c1129

inquired whether in the case of schools connected with the British and Foreign School Society, the Wesleyan Methodists, and the Free Kirk of Scotland, the conditions which had been agreed on between the Committee of the Privy Council and certain bodies representing those religious communities, would be equally compulsory with those which had been imposed on the Church of England schools?


replied that what were called the "Management Clauses" adopted and enforced by the Committee of Education, were enforced alike with respect to schools in connexion with all classes of Dissenters equally with those in connexion with the Church of England. He was glad to say that a perfect understanding existed between the Committee of Education and the Church of England and the various dissenting bodies on this subject.
